Travel questions

A few travel questions from this week’s excursions:

  • why is the print on hotel shampoo bottles so small? (ever put lotion on your head?)
  • why do middle seaters think they get the armrest?
  • why are NYC taxis the only ones that take credit cards?
  • how did we navigate before Google Maps?
  • why would anyone traveling from Newark Penn to New York Penn board a southbound Amtrak express?

The answer to the last one is ‘talking on a conference call while running to catch a train’ (perhaps the next thing to be outlawed).  I ended up in Philly; $100 and 3 hours later I was back in NYC.
